Run-A-Thon Information Comes Home
Friday, August 25, 2017
Location: Sycamore Middle School
We are excited to present our ninth Sycamore Middle School Run-A-Thon Fundraiser! This is an exciting event that creates team building and incorporates physical fitness in a positive atmosphere. It gives the students an opportunity to raise some money for the school without asking them to go out and sell products.
The students will organize themselves into teams from their grade level. Students should ask family, friends, and the community to sponsor them based on the number of laps their team can complete during one grade level block of time (only one person per team can run or walk at a time). Teams are capable of getting about 18 (or more) laps. Example: if a team completes 18 laps and the donor had pledged $1.00 per lap, the total donation is $18. Of course, flat donations are greatly appreciated. After completing the Run-A-Thon, students will collect their donations as committed on their pledge sheet and turn their money into our office during morning turn-in dates the week following the Run-A-Thon. Checks are preferred, if possible. Please make the check out to Sycamore Middle School.

Please support this event with your usual enthusiasm as this is our largest all-school fundraiser. Funds generated will benefit all curriculum areas and enhance the learning environment for all Sycamore Middle School students.
